Take a walk on the wild side...

okay.....not that wild, but the hybrid side...

If you haven't gotten bit by the hybrid bug yet...I believe it is only a matter of time until more and more traditional scrapbookers realize that many of the elements of scrapbooking can be produced right here in the comfort of your own home on your computer.
For me...I've been dabbling in the photo editing tricks of the hybrid side; converting photos to black and white, adding frames and brushes, playing with filters, playing with plugins, and adding text to the photo itself.
I don't consider myself to be a hard core hybrid scrapper...but for now...I'm very happy with dabbling in the wild side of scrapbooking...learning new tricks and pushing my photography skills at the same time... and it's fun over here on the wild side!!!
Here are a few of my hybrid layouts; some are among my favorite layouts ever:
this first one started with this photo that I took outside in the snow...I knew as soon as I loaded it up on the computer that I had to play with it in black and white!!!

This next layout features a wonderful quote that I added to the photo before I printed it:
This next photo features some photo tricks using selective coloring and layering to leave a few of the flowers colored.... I loved this photo so much I scrapped it twice!

Here it is again...

This layout is one of my favorites for a lot of reasons...I created this wonderful cloud around her of tulle from her costume...the photo itself is printed onto a transparency...

Here is one last layout...this one was a magical photo that I just had to make pop...so I added this wonderful quote to it before I printed it...it is one of my favorite layouts of all time.
So....want to join me on the wild side? aka the fun side...casa de-wild!!!
